What is this sound effect?

Postby Dust » Tue Jul 07, 2020 3:47 pm

Hi!
I'm trying to create a backing track for this composition: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ViWCjiLqWU8 and I can't understand how to make such bass sound (0:17 - 0:25).
Is it bass guitar or synth?
If it's synth, what's type of it?
What is the sound effect making "whoosh" sound on 0:23-0:24? Seems like a flanger, but I can't choose the settings.

Thanks in advance!

Probably a bass guitar.

Woosh is a cymbal-build and then stopped.

Isn't that a heavily chorused bass guitar (fretless?) layered with a low filtered synth?

My first thought was that the cymbal has been reversed.

I like the way that she's coordinated her lipstick and nail polish to match the pickup covers. I'm doing something similar by matching my fillings to my aged nickle humbucker.

I don’t think it’s a backwards cymbal, it reminds me more of a guiro but I think it’s a synth sound.

Me too, there's a cymbal swell at around 18" but the 'growling sound' a bit like a slowed down guiro is what I think the OP is trying to identify.

It sounds like a pitched down pick slide, that may be a way to replicate it

It sounds more like a cleverly applied formant filter set somewhere between 'o' and 'u' to me. It should work well on any harmonically rich sound, whether from a guitar or a synth.

Well I just have to interject to say this is some mighty expressive guitar performance, from an artist that I hadn't come across before.

Thank you for introducing me to Lari Basilio, mis/ter Dust, and welcome to the SOS FOrums! 8-)

And here's another link with Lari in some illustrious company: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5VkBUGfixZo
